It typically is clematis wilt. Get clean pruners (wipe them with bleach and water before and then after) and trim out the infected sections right away, anytime you see it, get it early before it spreads or you'll have to cut the whole thing off. It will come back (usually) but you'll lose the growth for that season. Here's more:
